"Stop the fucking about with time - already!!!"
Why? To what purpose in the modern world do 'they' have to mess with my body clock?
It is NOT good.
I don't give a flying fuck if it heralds the start of summer etc - poke summer up 'their' arses. I needed more sleep and now my whole day is a big, messy, hatratting pile of fuck'd-uppidness.

Started 14/02/09 finished today only took 350g of RYC Cashsoft DK. I really love this pattern is makes up really well and is a great knit - right on the spot of neither too easy or too hard.
This time round I lengthened the lower body and the sleeves by two inches each.
It fits very nicely and I am looking forward to wearing it.

He was gone all day and reappeared, sauntering out of Ma's bedroom, about 8.00pmish. He'd been in for a while when we found him as his fur was warm and he was calm. Normally when he first comes back he's wild and panics if you approach him etc. But this time M picked him up and he snuggled in and purred happily.
Conkers has always been an indoor cat (history had been told before on this blog but he was a rescue from a cruelty case and needed (then) to be an indoors kitty). But he escapes at least 4 times a year, if not more and once he decides it's time for foray, nothing will stop him until he manages it!
So his future as an indoor cat is under review, if he is soooooo determined to get out perhaps we should bow to his wishes. I'd rather get used to him being 'out' and it become the norm then spend all day like I did Tuesday, acting calm on the surface (J gets upset when Conks goes awol) but panicking all day that he might not come back. Not an easy decision to make. I've never had a come and go kitty, Buster and Kodo used to go in the back garden but never wandered and seemed happy and content with that but Conkers is such a strange boy, it is all new territory.
We're keeping him in till the weekend when we're both around a bit more and then we will see how it goes. A case of a deep breath and fingers crossed.

Don't even get me started on the laundry monster that manages to fill (to the brim) a large wicker laundry basket in one day! Where does it all come from? Why is most of it small and smelly? I thought boys were meant to like being grubby? And of course the laundry monster morphs in just a few hours to an ironing beast. Ugh!
It is a cycle sucks all the warmth and joy from my person and takes me away from all the important things I hold dear....my knitting......my spinning.....my book......my afternoon snooze.....my need to not be cleaning etc.
Someone, somewhere make it all go away or invent a self cleaning home along with self cleansing and self ironing clothes - we can fly to the f*****g moon this can't be that difficult, it's not a big ask and just think how happy it would make so many people - me included.

The yarn is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Multi in Montrose. It really speaks to me and I am using it as a carrot to finish other things before I ball it up.
